Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
- ST. FRANCIS DE SALES
Salesianum has a long and venerable history of powerhouse athletics, with 15 varsity sports and 147 state championships. While our student athletes develop their physical endurance and sports-specific skills, they also learn lessons that will stick with them throughout the rest of their lives – to persevere though challenges and to work with others towards a common goal.
On campus, athletes utilize the Anthony N. Fusco, Sr. Athletic Center, a state-of-the-art fitness facility dedicated in 2012, with 44,884 square feet of weights, cardio machines, locker rooms and a lecture hall. Trainers are on duty after school to instruct students in proper use of equipment and to develop free training plans which help each student to meet his individual fitness goals.
The Eugene A. DelleDonne ’32 Memorial Park is used by both athletic teams and the physical education program. The complex consists of six tennis courts, two baseball diamonds, two soccer fields, a football practice field, a lacrosse field, and facilities for field events including high jump, long jump, pole vault and shot put. Wilmington's Baynard Stadium is located across from Salesianum on 18th Street and serves as the home football field.
